Some societies especially in Asia(?) or mostly Southeast Asia(?), where I am in, do link age and marriage. I feel downgraded when people around me look and laugh at me for not marrying yet while some friends and relatives at my age or similar or even younger are married or even have kids. I don’t understand this world, just you are different from them, you become a laughing stock? I don’t think I need to rush and marry someone just because to shut their mouth up from speaking ill of or laugh at me. I won’t risk my happiness just to fulfill their daily gossip either. Sometimes you have to push other people’s mindset aside and enjoy your own company.
